So, using Firefox 3.0, I tried to install Google’s Chrome browser. I was told that I needed to install Windows XP Service Pack 2 first. I admit that I should have done this a while ago on this seldom-used desktop.
So, off I went to download SP2. I was told that, in order to download it, I would need to use Internet Explorer (or allow automatic updates). So off I went to Windows Update. But to use that site, I have to be using a current version of Internet Explorer. Yes, that does seem like a joke to me, but apparently Microsoft mean it.
So off I went to Internet Explorer Get It Now. You’re probably ahead of me here. IE7 and IE8beta each require… SP2.
I think I’ll wait to get my hands on the newish laptop downstairs before kicking the Chrome tires.

I used to work for AOL Tech Support and deal with problems like that about 100 times a day with people who thought their CD/DVD drive was a cup holder.
Then perhaps you are just the person to advise me on the problems I’m having with my cupholder…
It sounds like you’re creating problems yourself by trying to solve this issue instead of looking at why their is a problem in the first place
